The Camper

Although not as ubiquitous as the Type 1 Volkswagen Käfer the Type 2 Transporter took on far divergent identities. Built as a both with and without side windows, it came as a pickup or a fully-equipped camper, and aftermarket conversions were as hearses, ambulances, police and use in the fire service. During the the Kombi version, a window van removable seats, became the of choice for America’s hippies, with psychedelic paint

The Type 2 concept is credited to the importer, Ben Pon. His first date from 1947, but had to wait until March as VW caught up with demand for the Beetle. Since 1980 it has built in Brazil only, now a water-cooled engine. Production is scheduled to end this year.
